As the eight of us crammed into the examining room, the doctor quickly greeted the volunteer patient, an old acquaintance. The...
Today was my second day of volunteering at Saint Barnabas Medical Center and it went better than expected. My first day made me...
Its been a while since I posted something on tumblr. But since I actually have the time to write something out, I might as well type out whatever the hell I’m thinking right now.
“I’m good at what I do”
As you can see, I tend to find ways to correlate nursing and dance because they both essentially revolve around the same concept. One of my major goals in life is to follow in the foot-steps of those “dancing-nurses.” They inspire me because they make a great impact on many lives about every second of the day. So when people ask me what I’m going to school for, I tell them that I go to school to become a dancing-nurse lol.
…since my I’ve been on tumblr. I’ve randomly decided to take time and unwind just for a little while before finals come along.
Anyways, I’ve made a new blog solely dedicated to my experiences as a student nurse. God has blessed me with so many opportunities in the past and all I’ve been wanting to do lately is just blog about my experiences. I still have a long road ahead of me and I think it’ll be good for me (and hopefully for others as well) to express my thoughts and feelings throughout my journey. Anyways, here’s the link:

“Anything in life that’s real will take time to built. Luck is when preparation and opportunity meet and I feel that I’m slowly getting prepared for a lot of opportunities coming my way. And when they do come, I feel like I’m going to be ready for all the luck that’s going to happen. I took a lot of risks and sacrificed everything I had financially, but I feel that big things happen when you’re at your lowest point. Things are always hard in the beginning, but I feel that it will come back to me a hundred times greater. I just gotta keep putting the work in even if I don’t get enough out of it.” - Words inspired by The Illz
Why? Because the hardest choices are the ones that really make the man.
Sometimes, I feel like I’m not here. I say this because I stuck and I can’t seem to make whatever I envisioned in my sleep into something of definite belief. Something inside me feels the need to make a change in my life. A wise man told me once that this life we live will hold no meaning if we remain indecisive. He told me to take a chance, turn my life around, and change the plans. I can recall not too long ago of how I took a risk and asked this particular lady out to be my girlfriend. Who would have ever thought that I’d fall in love again? I also took the risk and applied for a highly competitive nursing program without having a back up plan if I hadn’t gotten in? Who would have ever thought that I’d get in? Now with all of that said, I’m about to take the next biggest risk in my life. Some may see it as I’m quitting, but I view as an opportunity to grow into something much more. Yes, I may struggle for a while, but sometimes, we just gotta trust our instincts and say that everything is going to be alright. Like Steve Job once mentioned, you can’t connect the dots looking forward. You can only connect the dots looking backward. I find myself constantly asking questions about life and discovering the answers by simply connecting the dots of my past. A good friend of mine told me once that I was lucky.. I didn’t what she meant until another friend of mine explained how she meant that I was blessed. I can’t seem to recall his exact words, but he pretty much meant that my work ethic would get me far in life. To be honest, I almost cried tears of joy. It just felt good to know that someone acknowledged my personality. People have always wondered why I have this certain drive inside me, and I never knew what to tell them. I feel like it’s just who I am as a human being. Is it bad to say that I enjoy working hard and putting some meaning into my life? For a while I’ve been stuck between my wants and my needs and I still can’t define the difference between the two because things constantly change in life. But if there is this one thing backing up this decision of mine, it would be the simple fact that I only have one life to live and I won’t let any parameters hold me back from refraining my thoughts. I’m done trying to make them understand because if they never did, then they never will. So as of next semester, I will be saying my goodbyes and I don’t plan on ever coming back again. Its time to move on to better opportunities to better my future and stray away from all of the negativity and unwanted stress. By the end of December, I will be saying fuck you Perkins Restaurant and Bakery, but thank you for the opportunity to grow as a human being. Yeahhhhh, I may want the money to pay off my bills, but I need my sanity to enjoy the little things in life.
I’m rarely on tumblr, but I need to get this across to certain people.
This bullying shit needs to stop. Words can’t explain how appalled I am at some of things I read on the news. I’ll admit that I wasn’t the best human being growing up, but sometimes we need to live in the dark in order to see the light. We learn from our mistakes. However, what I don’t understand is how some people can continue to bully others despite of all these reoccurring suicide attempts. It’s like they remain oblivious to the values of respect and what it means to treat others the way you want to be treated. I don’t know. It just pisses me off because I’ve been bullied growing up as a child and it hurts to see people take their own life away. I ask myself everyday, “What if that were me?” Have people forgotten empathy and what it means to put things into perspective? Sighhhh. I empathize for those who currently go through it because its not easy to endure. That shit fucks with you mentally and emotionally. I may be 20 years young, but my cognition exceeds most human beings in my generation. I know that for a fact because I still hear about people my age bullying others. Its a damn shame, and it sucks to know that most people are too busy with their lives to pay any mind to these tragic events. People talk about money issues when life itself holds no value. In my perspective, there’s nothing more important in life than life itself so please don’t destroy it.
Actions speak louder than words. I know its wrong and revenge is all in the lord’s hands, but if I ever saw a bully in action… I’m gonna step in and do something about it. Even if it meant giving my life up. Yeahh, I said it..
